Iím completely flabbergasted by this. It really wasnít unusual at all.

I just asked OH and he said they had candles on their tree when ne was young and his grandparents had them right up until they died in the nineteen eighties.
Ah well-can only say it as it was from our experience. OH confirms that he never ever knew anyone with real candles in the UK, even in the 40s/50s and 60s (I lived there since 1970)- and certainly not ones that were actually lit. So it is interesting. He lived in London, Sussex and Surrey as a child.

We had to explain to the girls that Santa didn't really like sherry and much preferred a good glass of single malt.
